Tholymis tillarga (Twister/White-barred Duskhawk)

found in Cambodiafound in SingaporeThese pictures record (not well) our two encounters with this species.

The first completely unexpected encounter was when the first female flew into the porch of the house where we were staying. The books do say that it is attracted to light. This was an unhappy encounter as there were resident Geckos hunting in the same porch; we found two remaining wings discarded the next morning. The Gecko must have fed very well, at least.

It is a crepuscular species and our second encounter was of a female hung-up, at the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore’s Marina Bay, waiting for the light to fall.
